Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1851

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 366:

I found Schumann's Overture to the 'Bride of Messina,' at the second hearing, full of power, character, and passion; but the audience, although it numbered many of Schumann's friends, was divided in its appreciation of the work.
